Congressman Jason Chaffetz
Re: Subpoena the CDC whistleblower, Dr. William Thompson
Dear Congressman Chaffetz,
Thank you for the warm reception you provided last week for my friend, Kristen Chevrier.
Kristen dropped off over 100 letters, including mine, in which we addressed the importance of supporting a congressional investigation into Dr. William Thompson’s allegations of CDC fraud and destruction of evidence linking the MMR vaccine to autism and other developmental disorders. Thompson is not the first to speak of CDC corruption. Just last year, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. wrote in USA Today, “Four scathing federal studies, including two by Congress, one by the U.S. Senate, and one by the HHS Inspector General, paint CDC as a cesspool of corruption, mismanagement and dysfunction with alarming conflicts of interest suborning its research, regulatory and policymaking functions.”
Thompson’s testimony is crucial because he is a CDC insider, and not just any insider. His signature rests on all three of the CDC studies that dismiss the vaccine/autism connection. When such a person steps forward and reveals that the supposed scientific foundation upon which the vaccine program is built is based upon greed, fraud, and corruption, then our elected officials are duty bound to investigate, and if found to be true, hold the perpetrators of such crimes accountable.
If true, virtually every person in the United States as well as millions of people around the world are victims of these crimes, which may constitute the greatest medical fraud in the history of humanity.
Please take five minutes and watch Congressman Posey’s July 2015 testimony in which he quotes Dr. William Thompson’s description of CDC fraud: “The coauthors scheduled a meeting to destroy documents related to the study. The remaining four coauthors all met and brought a big garbage can into the meeting room and reviewed and went through all the hard copy documents that we had thought we should discard and put them in a huge garbage can.”
When public health servants throw damning research into garbage cans, they are also damning our children and grandchildren to needless suffering, disabilities, and in some cases, death—not to mention incalculable costs to U.S. and global economies.
If our elected officials ignore this ethical, medical, and fiscal atrocity, they too are complicit.
Representative Posey testified, “Considering the nature of the whistleblower’s documents as well as the involvement of the CDC, a hearing and a serious investigation is warranted.”
Millions of concerned Americans stand with Posey: Dr. Thompson’s allegations of fraud and destruction of research must be investigated. We are calling upon you—as the head of the Oversight & Government Reform Committee—to initiate a congressional investigation.
Thompson said he’s through lying. He said he will testify before congress. You stand in a unique position to protect our children. Indeed, you stand in a unique position to change the course of history.
I join with millions who pray that you will do so.
